Another look at Seljalandsfoss, one of my favorites.




Looking out through Seljalandsfoss from behind the falls. That's not grain on the left, those are individual water droplets.

A coouple of very nice image there, love the colors on the rockface behind the waterfall on the first shot. The second is very unusual and an angle very rarely see. Superb work.

Nicely done and the second one is a stunner. Is that someone standing between the two cascades in the first shot?

Thanks for the feedback. And yes slowpez that is someone on the trail that goes behind the falls - it gives a good idea of scale. Good eye! The second picture was taken from that trail.

I've been loving all your photos. I'll be on my way to Rekyjavik next Friday to begin a tour around the whole island. I'm encouraged by your "gloomy" photos from this trip (not these specific ones) as I've been a bit worried by the weather, yet you've proven that even the weather you faced can still give good photos.

I'll be a little less confident with relying a tripod though if the winds whip up like you faced.

Thanks emalvick, I'm jealous. You'll love it, although you're bound to face some bad weather. I'd recommend bracketing whenever you're shooting in gray skies so you can add that deep gray back into the properly exposed landscape through layering. Also, I'd bring a waterproof camera sack (I just used a trash can liner) in case you have some really hard rains.

As for the tripod, I took one picture using a tripod in pretty high winds that was a 2 second exposure of a waterfall. The wind was enough to blur the entire image, so you'll probably want to hang some weight from the tripod center to help stabilize it if you're taking long-ish exposures. Generally though you can get around the problem with a sufficiently high shutter speed.

Have fun!
